vermin
UNITED STATES—No one really hibernates here. Well, ground squirrels might, but they are unlikely to be a problem in refined home gardens. Winter weather is sufficiently mild for most of the most troublesome vermin to remain active, even if somewhat subdued. Some are more active in autumn before food gets scarce. They store food for later, and eat more...

Break-Up (31)

UNITED STATES—The old man’s last moments must have been hell: that of the embalmed soul during the first time at a nudist colony.

Break-Up (30)

UNITED STATES—One-time detective Devon Zorba was jarred. It was as if he’d pulled a trigger and devastated a life that was already tossing on the spindrift toward the rocks. The question like herd of pink elephants, like the smell of burnt pita bread, hung heavy in the air. What had caused the hideous punishment to The Leader’s body? Time would...

Cooking Commitment

UNITED STATES—I made a pact with myself last week that I was going to head to the grocery store and cook dinner EVERY single day for the next week. Yes, I know this is something many Americans do on a constant basis, but for many of us it is extremely hard to commit to. You always have that day...

It seemed later, but the sundial—one of the crude technologies permitted by the old lady inside The...
